Vedic Astrology with Vimal Sood

Vedic Astrology comes to us from India since times pre-dating the Christian era. It is a system for analyzing behavior and forecasting cycles and outcomes of time and events using astronomical data in accordance with the tenets of Vedic philosophy. The purpose of Vedic Astrology is to avoid problems before they arise and effect changes in one’s life. Vimal Kumar Sood was introduced to Vedic Astrology in 2004 and he quickly found his natural gift in this great science of light called Jyotish. He was certified as a graduate of the American College of Vedic Astrology and started practicing in 2007. He has already built up a successful practice in Los Angeles and is also actively involved in teaching this great science to many students. Vimal is offering 30-minute sessions at Yoga Day for the special price of $40. Information will be included with your registration packet and sessions will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis.


Woodlands Indian Cuisine

For the past six years, lunch at Yoga Day has been provided by Woodlands Indian Cuisine, an all-vegetarian Southern Indian restaurant in Chatsworth. They serve a wide variety of dishes, from mild to spicy, including a delicious dessert and the best chai tea around. The friendly staff are always happy to meet our yogis and offer up generous helpings of their fine regional fare.
